Jesse Marsch has given an update on Leeds United’s injury situation ahead of Tottenham.

Leeds United will be without Patrick Bamford, Mateusz Klich and potentially Jack Harrison for the trip to Spurs. Bamford is yet to fully recover from a hip problem sustained in training last week, having sat out the win over Bournemouth and the Carabao Cup exit at Wolves.

Klich, who was this week left out of the Poland squad for the World Cup, picked up a knock in that Molineux visit and Harrison has a slight question mark over his availability for Saturday's game in London.

"Patrick is out for this match, he still hasn't recovered," said head coach Jesse Marsch

Klichy will be out and Jack Harrison is a little questionable with a muscle strain but we're hopeful he can recover in the next 24 hours."

The game comes three days too soon for Adam Forshaw, who had a hernia operation and is back in training, and Archie Gray has encountered a fresh issue that could sideline him until the end of the calendar year.

"Archie Gray has turned into a little bit of an ankle injury," said Marsch. "Due to his age we have to shut him down for about six to eight weeks. It's a little defect in his ankle that got highlighted when he broke his toe. I spoke to him and he's obviously down about it, but given his age and physical maturity we think it's the best thing."

Stuart Dallas is making what Marsch calls 'great progress' in his rehabilitation from a femoral fracture and surgeries, and could be back on the pitch by January according to Marsch.
